I am trying to generate a continuous sawtooth ramp from 2-4GHz.  I am considering the ADF4159, but it looks like I will need a few external components.  Can this be accomplished using the evaluation board for the ADF4159?  Can you suggest a VCO and anything else that would be needed for this application?  Here's what I need:


·         Programmable start and stop frequency

·         Low phase noise

·         Ramp from 2-4 GHz


Additionally, let me know if there is a better part/solution.
